Ah, so, now that my hands are cramping up from excessive exacto knife usage, here's the challenge entry.

I'm a graphic designer and use paper and text all the time, so my thought was a crown incorporating those. The only problem was that I couldn't come up with text to use....I knew I wanted to use two certain fonts (Bodoni and Gil Sans), but the words???

And then...of course! Filler text! The Latin "lorem ipsum..." passage that I use as default to show what body text will look like on a page when I have to design something but am not given any content.

No action shots; I designed it in Illustrator, printed it out, and then just got down to cutting.





Tiring, but fun! And apparently very petite!  Roll Eyes

WOW. That is AWESOME. When I looked at the first picture, I thought it was something done on the computer.  Smiley

I can't imagine how long that must have taken to cut out!  It is absolutely beautiful!

Oh. My. God. I'm a graphic designer too and I'm and just in awe. This takes me back to my Typography classes. I can't believe you cut all that out with an exacto. Just thinking about that gives me cramps I know will last weeks. Amazing job. I bow to the Queen of Filler Text! hahaha

I can't believe you cut all of that out, and it turned out so well.  I'm the type to get 75% done and make a fatal error with the scissors.  That's really incredible!
